Supporting CSOs on EITI

The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) is a global Standard to promote open and accountable management of natural resources. Countries implementing the EITI must disclose information on tax payments, licenses, contracts, production and other key elements around resource extraction. Civil society’s substantive participation is an important part of a country’s ability to become an EITI member. An essential element of EITI is the formation of a multi-stakeholder group which must include representatives from government, the mining industry and civil society.

AUA Center for Responsible Mining organized a series of meetings and discussions in 2015 and 2016 for civil society organizations (CSOs) to participate in the EITI process and eventually elect their representatives on national EITI’s multi-stakeholder group (MSG).
